SUMMER INTERSHIPS AT THE FINANCE FACULTY

SUMMER INTERSHIPS AT THE FINANCE FACULTY

Aalto University School of Business

What would I do during the internship?

You would be working with the faculty on scientific research projects during the summer months. Exact dates are flexible; you would also have the possibility to work on a part-time basis during the academic semesters. You would participate in data collection and organization for research projects. Literature reviews are another possible job. If you are an excellent programmer, there are many things where you could contribute. Whatever research-related skills you have, we will try to tailor your work to make the best out of those skills.

What’s in it for me?

As a member of our community, you will have the opportunity to learn research skills on the job. These skills will not only be helpful in your Master’s thesis but are also in demand in many finance and consulting sector occupations. If you want to pursue an academic career, you will greatly benefit from an early integration into the research community. And of course, you will get flexible working hours and a salary.

What is required?

We are primarily looking for Finance students in their second to fourth year of studies. Completion of a Bachelor’s thesis or other relevant experience is a plus. First and foremost, we want dedicated people who fit well into our community, who are interested in the financial world and financial research, and who have the potential to develop into excellent researchers.

How can I apply?

Contact Professor Matti Keloharju, tel. +358 40 353 8043, email [email protected] Include in your application a personal cover letter, CV, and a transcript of your university grades. The application deadline is February 1, 2019.
